About: I have been an educator for over 13 years. I've taught every grade level from K-6. I have my Masters in elementary education, as well as CA teaching credentials. I’ve worked in independent schools and charter schools. In San Francisco, I spent most of my career at The Hamlin School, and a little time at the Chinese American International School as well. A little over a year ago, I decided to leave a traditional school setting to start my own tutoring business. I specialize in STEAM education, as I love the inquiry-based approach of STEAM curriculum, and I enjoy the hands-on nature of this work. While I have been lucky to pivot to Zoom tutoring for some of my students, I do miss working with kids in person. There just isn’t a substitute for the face-to-face interaction, as I’m sure you are well aware of. However, I have not felt comfortable going back to multiple homes for 1:1 in-person tutoring right now. Working with one family, or a small pod (2 families max) on a part-time basis would be ideal for me right now. My educational philosophy is guided by one word: intention. I believe that working with kids requires a lot of thoughtful planning, and consideration. I believe that my role as an educator is to facilitate a child's learning, and to help guide them to where they need to go. I am organized, tech savvy, patient, and communicative. Thank you for creating this platform to help match educators and families during these uncertain times!
